We're pleased to announce that we have joined forces with international award winning wildlife photographer Phil Gould. Phil is the author of 365 Photography Days and also runs wildlife courses for the Jessops Academy in the UK.
Phil will be running photography safaris in 2018 with On Track Safaris, both in India (March 2018) and South Africa (September 2018).
Places on these special safaris are limited to six persons, for more details CLICK HERE.
As ever, our safaris aim to fund and support local conservation initiatives in the area which we operate. For example for the past ten years (and for the foreseeable future) OTS has funded our work with Leopards in South Africa.
We are now operating safaris in India and as a result we have joined the TOFT Tigers conservation group funding and supporting Tiger conservation initiatives in India. CLICK HERE for more info on our Indian safari itineraries
Of-course we love all wildlife, but it's fair to say that working with big cats was the main reason that Carol and I first moved to Africa and subsequently the common denominator on why we select new safari locations. Whether it's Lions, Tigers, or Leopards, big cats remain my favourite.
Join us on safari in South Africa or India for memories that will last a lifetime.
The scourge of Rhino poaching is ever present in Africa and especially South Africa. Sadly it is not something that will go away quickly and long term solutions are needed. The ray of hope is that there is a huge ground swell of people supporting anti poaching projects.
Thankfully many of the private game reserves within the greater Kruger park have significant anti poaching patrols and safari guests are still able to see these magnificent creatures.
The only proviso we ask is that any pictures of Rhino that you take on safari with us, are not geo-tagged when published on social media, for obvious reasons.
On Track Safaris was formed to raise funds for our work in conservation and education. It's the very bed rock of why we operate our safaris. Much of the leopard research work we do involves using camera traps to monitor and record leopard movement in South Africa. Where, safari guests are invited to be involved by trying their hand at camera trapping, quite often with amazing results.
But being involved with camera trapping is something you can be part of at any time from anywhere in the world. Just join our camera trappers club to be involved.
We're very pleased to announce that On Track Safaris has joined the TOFT Tigers program which works to conserve Indian wildlife. A great example of the work they do is to recruit ex poachers to become guardians of wildlife, which has proved to be very successful.
Join an On Track Safari in India and you can enjoy some amazing wildlife experiences and be contributing to Tiger conservation. CLICK HERE for more information.
Ok, it's not a huge secret, but ....South Africa offers the best value safaris for 2017. Turmoil on the international markets in 2016 has made 2017 the year to visit South Africa.
We have secured some great deals with our lodge providers and can still offer some great deals, however we only use small intimate and exclusive lodges, so my advice is to book early to avoid disappointment. www.ontracksafaris.com
